Heavenly Father, what an amazing plan of redemption, that despite the fall of Adam, You purposed to redeem mankind by the sacrifice of Your only begotten Son – and that through His death and resurrection I too have received the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting. Thank You that the old creation will one day be totally replaced by the new Creation-in-Christ – when ALL things will become new. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that I have been saved by grace - through faith in Christ. But Lord, I realise that to truly become a disciple of Yours, I must deny myself, and all that it entails. I now understand that I must lay my entire life on the sacrificial alter, as a willing offering.. and be ready and willing to say, 'not I but Christ'. May I be prepared to say, in all things - 'not my will but Yours be done', and help me to deny myself, take up my own cross and follow You, willingly and joyfully - to Your praise and glory - this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.
